DuPont™ Insulated Battens maintain R-value when installed with DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0

To maintain a continuous R-value when installing lap board siding, DuPont has developed insulated battens for use with DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0. The DuPont™ Insulated Battens are made from CDX plywood and extruded polystyrene to serve as a thermal bridge and nailing strip to compensate for any R-value reduction as a result of ThermaWrap™ R5.0 compression. These are available in two styles: the standard DuPont™ Insulated Batten for nailing strips and DuPont™ Insulated Batten CT for use around windows/doors and on inside/outside corners. The DuPont™ Insulated Batten CT can also be used to buck out windows and doors behind vinyl siding, brick or stone. (DuPont™ Insulated Battens are not needed behind vinyl siding, brick, or stone.)
